Great French pastries. Friendly service. A real nice place to hang in the lower eastside. Came in after a recommendation and was highly surprised of the nice selection of cakes. Tried the Palmier cookie which was super buttery and sooo tasty.

Title says it all. Went there a few days ago as I was looking for a place to get breakfast. As French myself, what's better than French pastries? Get the chouquettes which were good and a coffe "éclair". This was not an éclair. Éclair aren't...More

Stopped there to grab a bagel and a drink and was poorly received by the employee working there that day. He had a very bad attitude and didn't seem to want to be there. I ordered a plain bagel with cream cheese and a lemonade....More

While on a walk through Chinatown we came across the Ceci-Cela patisserie. Tea really good and the eclairs really yummy! Staff pleasant and reasonable price.

We visited this cafe twice for take out coffee and I would say the best we had in Little Italy. The pastries were tasty and fresh. Would recommend this for a good equivalent coffee to what we get in Australia. Service was fast and efficient.

We stopped in for a delicious iced cappuccino to cool off on a very hot afternoon. Service was very friendly. Desserts look amazing. Small but cozy.

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
